      Antenna making a noise in wind

      Anyone have the problem of the antenna making an annoying sound while driving on a windy day? the antenna conducts it though the roof and into the cab. If so, how did you fix it? Kind of sounds like a winy whistle sound.

      its like when you blow over the mouth of a bottle right? that kind of sound? my 08 aveo 5 ls does it but i think its the jam cause when i jam my fingers in to door jam it stops... so check that out... also the antenna does comes off so try going a day w.o it and see if it stops.. process of elimination. if its the antenna then go to ebay and search for carbon fiber short antenna works just as good but its only 4 inches long! if it doesnt stop when you remove the antenna then gurenteed you need a new door jam weather strip.. their like 20 bucks. easy to replace.

      I don't think it is the door jam, the sound is up above my head, in the same spot where the antenna is. I will remove it and see if it is for sure. Thanks for the help.

      Yes you should try to remove the antenna and then see. I also had the same problem.

      well it was doing it on the way home today, i tried opening the doors while i was driving. it is the passenger door. As soon as i opened it, it stopped. As soon as i closed it, it started again. so replacing the weather stripping should work?? anyone have this problem?
